Old School Bellydance - Egyptian style!

The music we will be dancing to was recorded live in Cairo for bellydancers to be able to experience clear musicality, taqsim solos and the rich maqamat within the Arabic musical structures.

The movements are gravity rich, subtle, earthy and lyrical - there is no fancy choreography, because the intention is to have room to move, create, and feel the musical responses in the moment.

Movements and intrumental responsivity will be practiced, then the dance opends up to a flexi-choreography, where we outline a basic structure, through understanding the maqamat, patterns and story - which create the feel or mood. Then we improvise and simply enjoy the dance!

Keti brings in some new format A-Z Bellydance as an option, to expand your range of movement. The aim is to establish a deeper somatic connection to your movement, allow your dancing to become more flowing and "in the moment" and improve improvisational confidence, as you learn more about Egyptian classics.
